About research in the Energy and Environment Cluster:

Energy is a major challenge that faces the world today.  Research into energy generation, storage and usage is needed to deliver solutions that will allow a growing global population to share in the technological advances of the industrial era.
Below are some examples of research in this cluster:

 

  • Energy storage: mobile devices require highly efficient methods of storing the energy used to drive them, whilst the charging cycles need to be highly flexible; in order to deliver solutions, we need new materials designed from the bottom-up.
